Modification of Alimony

Family Law Attorneys in Jacksonville, Florida – (904) 770-3141

Alimony and spousal support are supposed to be ways to help the spouse of lesser income stay financially afloat after their divorce finalizes. The amount of alimony paid each month may be useful right after the divorce ends, but there are many circumstances in which it is no longer enough, or possibly too much. What are you supposed to do if alimony is not working as intended for you and your ex-spouse?

With our extensive legal experience and client-focused approach to casework, we are equipped to guide you through this difficult time with confidence and comfort.

You can start your case with a free consultation. Contact us now.

Modifying Alimony: When Is It Needed?

In order to modify your alimony or spousal support order, you will likely need to go through a significant change of circumstances for the family law court reviewing your petition to approve it. Without there being new financial demands or strains on you or your ex-spouse, the court might not find enough reason to make the modification.

Significant changes of circumstance that might convince the court include:

  • Receiving spouse loses employment unexpectedly.
  • Receiving spouse finds gainful employment.
  • Either spouse experiences a medical emergency that causes expensive medical costs.
  • Either spouse remarries.

For a modification of alimony case, the argument can be brought forth by the receiving spouse that a greater amount of alimony each month is needed. On the contrary, the paying spouse could ask for a modification that reduces how much alimony they pay each month. Our law firm is capable of representing your best interests, no matter which side of alimony you stand on.
